Did you know you can get a 900€ grant to purchase and install an EV charger for your workplace? Here's everything you need to know.
Now that the KfW framework for private charging stations has been exhausted, a new program has been introduced to fund charging stations for businesses. To take advantage of this subsidy of up to 900€ per charger, companies must meet some requirements...
This new subsidy is primarily aimed at companies, but sole proprietors and freelancers may also apply. Additionally, public corporations and institutions like chambers and associations, and non-profit organizations, including churches, can use the funding.
The subsidy of up to €900 can be spent on purchasing and installing the EV charger. If the charging station has several charging points, you can claim a subsidy of 900€ per charging point. The condition is that the cost per charging point must amount to 1.287,71€. If the cost is lower, the subsidy amount will be a maximum of 70% of the total amount.
For example, if your company installs a charging station with two charging points and the total costs are 2,571.43€, KfW will pay a maximum subsidy of 1,800€. However, if the total cost is only 2,000€, only 70% of the total cost will be paid out as a subsidy, in this case, 1,400€.
The KfW has regulated exactly which charging stations are subsidized. To verify whether the model you have chosen is eligible, take a look at the list published by KfW.
If your charging station isn't included in this list, it is best to contact the manufacturer directly. Manufacturers still have the opportunity to register their chargers with the KfW.
With the Ostrom tariff, you meet the green electricity criteria for KfW funding. You will receive the corresponding contract confirmation by email immediately after grid registration, so nothing stands in the way of a quick payment.
